washington from inside? well -- >> he's the president of the united states. who else is going to change washington. people look to him for leadership. that's the criticism. >> the american people are going to change washington. that's what he has always said throughout this campaign and the previous campaign. you know what we've proved it. it's the only reason we cut taxes for the middle class, the only reason we were able to reform the health care system or put wall street protections in place. you know, if we hadn't mobilized the american people we wouldn't be able to cut payroll taxes. that is the only way you can change and affect change in washington. >> does he sound -- >> particularly -- >> does he sound like he's giving up on moving past the gridlock, getting his legislation through congress? doesn't he have to lead the way if we're going to have immigration reform, have tax reform, if big things are going to happen, the way as you would argue he did with health reform? >> andrea you know washington well and understand there are pretty tough entrenched interests in the house rep

'm running for a second term as president of the united states. sy told you before and i will tell you again the the path i'm offering is not necessarily going to be quick or easy. because the truth is, it's going to take more than few years to solve challenges that built up over decades. but i can tell you this, virginia, this is america. our problems can be solved and our challenges can be met. we've got the best workers in the world, the best business people and entrepreneurs and scientists and researchers in the world, colleges and universities in the world. there's not a country on earth that wouldn't trade places with the united states of america. so the path i'm offering may be harder, but it leads to a better place. i'm offering a practical, five-point plan to create jobs, and grow the middle class. and rebuild the economy on a stronger foundation. so let me break it down in case you guys missed the convention. just in case. or just in case you only saw michele. number one -- >> that was president obama speaking to a riled up crowd in woodbridge, virginia. michael hastings has been o

crackers in the united states senate would have ever voted for it if the pressure had not come from martin luther king and others with the civil rights movement? no way! look at healthcare reform. president obama could have ever got than passed without pressure from nurses and seniors and consumer groups and activist and labor unions around the country. no way! the truth always is, these members of congress are so entrenched that you have to have that pressure from the outside and it was only by building that pressure from the outside on the inside that president obama is able to get the affordable care act passed and yes, it is going to be the same thing with campaign finance reform. do you think these dodos are ever going to vote on their own for campaign finance reform? no, it will take a major movement on the part of the american people and pressure and demands on the part of the american people to get congress to act. so, i don't know. what do you think about this? 1-866-55-press. republicans are trying to say this

believe in. that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. >> not familiar with precisely with exactly what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it was. ♪ here i go again on my own ♪ going down the only road i've ever known ♪ >> how do you know it's been a bad week for the republican presidential nominee? that's when willard mitt romney wants to change the subject to his tax returns. yes, you heard me right. that's how bad things have become for mr. romney. the meeting went something like this. someone on the campaign suggested bringing out a whiteboard on an airplane tarmac. that got shot down. they've already done the veep rollout. too late, i guess, to do that again. a foreign trip? i don't think that's such a good idea. the entire foreign front has proved a complete and utter disaster. but then came the eureka moment. one hour ago, 3:00 p.m. on a friday afternoon to be exact, the campaign decided it would finally release the romneys' full 2011 tax returns. mitt and ann paid $1.95 million in taxes on his 2011 investment income of $13.7 million
's judgment? is because the only text you have when you're president of the united states is what do you do when you're faced with the unexpected? this is the expected, and he doesn't seem to be doing very well with it. >> when we look at the politics of this, a cnn/orc poll was released saying that 63% of all americans say, yes, when the question was asked whether he should release more tax returns. so i think, when you're dealing with tax rates, when you're dealing with fairness, especially when you're dealing in light of this 47% statement, that this is a sound political question since candidates in the past have had to do this. >> no question. and what mr. johnston said is particularly revealing. let's assume the romneys did pay 14% to 20% that the letter seems to imply, each and every year for the last 20. this year he paid about 14%. so if that were the case, then what's the reason for not releasing it? in many years, he paid more than he paid in 2011, if you believe what the accountant says. they paid up to 20%. so the damage is already done. people know, because of the way the tax c
, here's what's happening. the latest protests over an anti-muslim film made in the united states left at least 19 people dead in pakistan. there were demonstrations, once again, across the mideast and asia. >>> the space shuttle "endeavour" landed safely on the back of a 747 at los angeles international airport. >>> and a man is in critical condition after being mauled by a target at new york's bronx zoo. at this point, not clear why he jumped into the tiger habitat. back to "hardball." >>> welcome back to "hardball." the battle for control of the u.s. senate is likely to hinge on a few states that could go either way, and right now they're too close to call. in virginia, for months the former democratic governor tim kaine seemed to be underperforming president obama in his home state. and he's no better than tied with the other former governor and former senator george allen. just this week, four polls have put kaine up an average of four points in a very tight race. the most impressive poll was "the washington post" which gave kaine an edge driven by an overwhelming percent of women
. >> the president of the united states says he can't change washington from the inside. he said he can't change washington from the inside. he says he can't change it from the inside. >> reporter: but at this point, both candidates are looking for any edge they can find. the president wasted no time painting romney as out of touch for saying the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes are irresponsible, government-dependent victims. >> when you express an attitude that half the country considers itself victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on government, my thinking is, maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> reporter: on radio iowa late thursday, ann romney was asked about republican critics who say her husband is running a losing campaign. >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it? get in the ring. >> reporter: and, george, both sides reported more than $110 million having been raised in their august financial reports. but the romney campaign facing some questions from republican donors about a $20 million loan it had to take out. and also, up to $200,000 in bonuses
it. we need to do it by the end of my first term as president of the united states of america. and i will make it a top priority in my first year as president. >> so, david, when the president says he didn't promise immigration reform as a priority, is he rewriting history a little bit there in. >> i don't think he didn't say he didn't promise it as a priority. it was a priority, savannah. i was in a room in 2009 at the white house where he called together all of those members of congress who had supported immigration reform in the past, republicans and democrats, and he said let's lock arms and get this done. >> but he didn't put forward a bill. >> every single republican walked away because it became the policy of the republican party to walk away from immigration reform, so, you know, hopefully with the votes in november, people will say, okay, let's come back to the table and get this done, but the president did pass out of the house and out of the senate a d.r.e.a.m. act that was blocked by a minority of republicans in the senate on procedural grounds. he did move on the status
to the united states? was our tax money supporting that? >> no, he left the compound % because he rejected polygamy. >> when he was brought back wasn't he a small child? >> no, he was married before he came back. and served in the nixon administration, and ran for president, so it would be hard to hide a sister wife. >> stephanie: pete in chicago, you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: hi there, thank you for all of the fun and good work you are doing. and actually if somebody really looked at this 47% situation, i think romney has it backwards, because the people with the escalades, and wide-screen tvs are his base. and they are living on our money, which is the tax money they don't pay. so we're supporting them and they seem to have an insatiable appetite. and i'm 67. it was in business 24 years. many years i couldn't contribute to ira. i'm a little short of money. the taxes have gone up on my house. i have one lung, heart failure, i'm 67. if they kill social security and medicare to pay for these guys toys, i'm dead. i don't want pity, because i'm living
